Religion, Culture and Society in Early Modern Britain: Essays in Honour of Patrick Collinson
In this volume seventeen distinguished historians of early modern Britain pay tribute to an outstanding scholar and teacher. Several present reviews of major areas of debate: of the significance of the regulations which determined the social and legal status of professional actors in Elizabethan England, of Protestant ideas about marriage, of the political significance of the Anglo-Scottish Union, of relations between the Churches of England, Scotland and Ireland under the early Stuarts, and of the riddle of the inner dynamic of the experience of emigration of New England. There are case studies which include the relationship between ideas of cleanliness and godliness, and the flowering of the notion of unitive Protestantism in two declarations at a moment of political crisis in the north of England. This very wide-ranging and fascinating collection of essays will appeal both to specialists in the period and to those interested in the social and cultural history of early modern Britain.
